Archaeological sites

 

The House of Livia was built on the Palatine Hill probably in the first half of the first century BC. 

The building underwent a major renovation around 30 BC and in this period are the magnificent frescoes that are still visible today.

The rooms have a very simple floor decoration made with black tiles on the bottom of white tiles; the series of frescoes that cover the walls is rich and impressive.

In the TABLINUM it seems there was the sequence of the most interesting paintings. The frescoes visible today show a low podium surmounted by a series of  columns holding up a fake coffered ceiling. In the space between the columns open imaginary views.

The adjoining room shows a simpler decoration with festoons and garlands with fruit, columns and architectural elements.

The building is attributed to Livia, wife of Augustus (but others have speculated Livia daughter of Tiberius Nero), because in lead pipes found on engraved with the owner's name: IULIA AUGUSTA. 

Livia's House still has the original access with a corridor in mosaic with white background with black tiles. 

From here you access to a courtyard with three rooms covered with beautiful paintings of the Second Style, with mythological and genre scenes, landscapes and architecture in perspective.

The House of Livia was subjected to some general development works: the replacement of the roof, the construction of an an elevator for disabled people, the "make-up" of the beautiful frescoes.
